Tinnitus is a perception of sound that can be generated by pathological changes in various levels of the acoustic system. The aim of study was to establish a risk profile of patients with tinnitus and TMD and to determine the relative share of patients with TMD and tinnitus problems.The subject of the study were 150 patients with TMD and tinnitus, who were examined. Bruxism is considered a risk factor for TMJ dysfunction, and its presence increases the risk of such dysfunction by about 21 times (OR = 20,952 (2,702-162,469); p less than0.001).The most common cause of TMJ dysfunction is bruxism, followed by various joint TMJ diseases.
